looks like you've learned a good lesson here.. always leak test your tank before you go through the process of setting everything up... saves a lot of time and stress if it does leak, and yes, even new tanks can leak... but, before you lose hope, make sure that you didnt just leak some water in to the trim... i did that once and was convinced that my tank was leaking.. until it didnt leak

Its mushroom disc coral, I used water from my previous tank, my LFS store told me to use the old water and everything.

Water dripped from a water change should evaperate pretty swiftly.

I would get some air in a can, and spray it in the crack to lessen the pool and hope that it evaps. From there, if the water comes back, then you know you have a leak.

I tryed it for a few minutes with a hair dryer that has a cool feature, it wasnt hot or anything but it wasnt cold air either. The water inside the tank is 82 F. I don't think it did much.

yes I know what you meant. I think I can sleep soundly tonight for I don't see anymore water and when I push up on the ledge no water comes forward, there is in some places what looks like a salt creep, dried white crust looking stuff where the water was.
